Experience a patchwork of golden fields, character towns and self drive routes in the stunning wheatbelt.

The Western Australian Wheatbelt is home to the world-famous Wave Rock / Katter Kich, as well as character townships, miles of golden fields, charming rural farms and great outback self-drive adventures. Being only a short drive of Perth, it’s no wonder this is such a popular family holiday destination.

Experience the very best of the region’s country charm and rich pioneering history by visiting the character outback pubs, exploring the quaint main streets and meeting the friendly locals of the towns. And to make your Western Australian Wheatbelt holiday complete, stay at one of the many farm stays, where your children can cuddle the cute farmyard animals and you will enjoy good home-cooked food and deliciously fresh local produce, from wines and preserves to olive oil and yabbies.

Wave Rock, near Hyden is the most recognised tourist attraction in the region – an amazing rock formation stretching 100 metres and standing 15 metres high in the shape of a giant wave about to crash over the surrounding bush. Beautiful granite rock formations can also be found in the northern Wheatbelt. In fact Westonia features its own giant wave rock – Elachbutting. You’ll also find the white hidden valley of Chiddarcooping also at Westonia, Uberin Rock at Dowerin and Buckley’s Breakaway at Kulin.

Nature-lovers will also enjoy the West Australian Wheatbelt’s Dryandra Woodland. One of Western Australia’s most important areas for wildlife preservation, it is home to numbats, tammar wallabies, brushtail possums, kangaroos and tawny frogmouth owls. And from June to early November the Wheatbelt offers another great natural attraction with a dazzling display of Western Australian wildflowers, from carpets of everlastings to unique wreath flowers.
